Facebook Graph Search Arrives To Challenge Google, Yelp, Foursquare & Others


After largely ignoring that little white box at the top of its interface for years, Facebook is finally getting serious about search.

The company announced today a new experience that it’s calling Facebook Graph Search.

It relies heavily on “Likes” and other connections to determine what to show as the most relevant search results for each user. It also offers what you might think of as search filters — the ability to search based on the vast user data that Facebook has in its system (or “graph,” as they like to say).

    Thanks for posting, Tom. I’ll be interested to see how this pans out. Historically, Facebook has had a horrible search function — in the past I’ve actually had to switch over to Google to find some businesses’ Pages. If they’ve gotten their act together and Graph Search works well, it could really change the way we use the site.

      There is no denying the power and reach that Facebook has. I have been using Google + more and more and am diving deeper into both the strategies that Google and Facebook are employing. Things sure are about to get more interesting.
